NFS-GANESHA is a user-level server implementation of the Network File System protocol under the  LGPLv3 license. This is designed from the ground-up to provide a very large metadata and data  caches (up to millions of records) and to provide NFS exports to various files systems and  namespaces.  The unique differentiator of NFS-Ganesha is its File System Abstract Layers(FSAL). The FSALs offer  the product with a unique API (used internally)  to access the underlying namespace. The FSAL  module is basically the "glue" between the namespace and NFS-GANESHA giving access to all the  standard and special features of the underlying filesystem. Having support for the special features of each filesystem, opens up multiple use-cases. Best of all, with NFS-Ganesha, there is no need to settle for the least-common-denominator. 

In addition to the details about the technology, on-going development, and future plans, this presentation focuses on  various use-cases of NFS-Ganesha and its edge over the alternative solutions. Further more discuss on how it is the best suited option for various interesting  scenarios in NAS, cloud, backup applications. This presentation is  targeted for NFS enthusiasts, exploiters and developers.
